Based on the results of the study, an analytical report was prepared and presented to the community leadership, and working groups were set up to work out changes and additions to the regulations. This was followed by advocacy for change.

The experts conducted a number of events from personal meetings and presentations to remote discussions in the format of video conferences “Improving the tools of local democracy during the period of restrictive measures” for representatives of each UTC. As a result of the project the following documents are accepted:
